The Deathwatch Beetle is common throughout the entire island. This beetle viciously attacks large hardwood timbers such as Elm and Oak. Due to its incredible appetite, after starting in hardwoods like these, the beetle will move onto softwoods in a all-you-can-eat extravaganza. The beetle is able to develop extremely rapidly. Treatment must be done by a certified professional immediately.
Items that can be infested by woodworm include any wooden tools or tool handles, frames, furniture, books, bamboo, flooring, and structural timbers – which presents grave danger.
